Alan Broadbent - piano

"Close Encounter with a Jazz Titan" - Some jazz pianists dazzle with sheer technical proficiency. Others persuade you with their creative reharmonization, rhythmic manipulation or the lyricism of their melodic lines. Very few can do it all, and Alan Broadbent is one of them.

Even with all the accolades, two Grammy awards and seven nominations, he is under-appreciated as a mainstream piano virtuoso. His breathtaking technique and orchestral approach to the keyboard are by-products of his classical orientation and training, which informs and deepens his bop pedigree.

If anyone doubts the utility or appropriateness of using classical technique in jazz, Broadbent's display of improvised fireworks (which are fully evident on several live albums), should put that to rest.

To quote one aspiring jazz pianist after listening to one of Alan's sets... "It's humbling; but we each have to play what we can play with all our hearts." . . . Alan certainly plays with all of his!
